Engaging Instructional Methods and Growth of Psychological Resilience”
We are keenly aware that everyone, both officer and enlisted, is training someone to do something within the organization. Our training ignites cooperation, calibration, and better listening and communication skills in instructional and work environments. We will give you the tools to captivate your trainee’s attention through our unique, yet simplistic, engagement practices. This training will garner their attention, curiosity, interest and ultimately increase their optimism, passion, and the ability to better retain information being given in a high stakes, high pressure environment.
This workshop uses engaging instructional strategies that reinforce, inspire, and motivate follow through and lasting learning with adult learners. Air Force personnel will learn instructional delivery methods that promote resilience and improve morale. Along with effective instructional strategies, they will participate in challenging activities that will require creative problem solving, communication skills, and mental toughness. This allows the group to experience first-hand how important it is to have effective listening skills, as well as the ability to alter their communication styles, adapt behaviors to meet the needs of the situation, and improve resilience skills.
THE PAYOFF: TRAINEES WILL WANT TO BE THERE, ON THEIR OWN! THEY WILL BE PRESENT PARTICIPANTS WHO WILL TAKE INSTRUCTION AND LEARNED KNOWLEDGE THROUGH BETTER RETENTION TECHNIQUES. THEY WILL BE BETTER LEADERS, MENTORS, CUSTOMER SERVICE REPRESENTATIVES, AND ULTIMATELY PASS-IT-ON!

Resilience is the ability to “bounce back” from difficult experiences. Resilience is not a trait that people
either have or don’t have. It involves behaviors, thoughts, and actions that can be learned and developed
in anyone. Resiliency is a positive way of coping with adversity or distress. It is defined as an ability to
recover from stress, conflict, failure, change, or an increase in responsibility. Resilience is encouraged by
providing supportive relationships and resources that help personnel recuperate from stress, conflict,
failure, or changes in responsibility.
Psychological Capital (PsyCap) is a meta-concept that incorporates various traits that have been found to
foster psychological resilience.
Individuals who believe that they can do something about their stress have a more positive psychological
adaption than those who do not hold such beliefs. PsyCap skills positively buffer the impact of stress so
that the relationship between stress and negative outcomes is reduced. We’re interested in resilience as
opposed to vulnerability, and concerned with enhancing wellness, prosperity, and good life skills that
correlate to physical and psychological health.
This fast-paced, innovative, and dynamic workshop explains why, while simultaneously demonstrates how
to put these strategies in practice. We will explore a series of seldom-discussed educational techniques
behind facilitating instruction, mentorship, and inspiration.
Military personnel will enhance their own instructional delivery practices to include methods that boost
responsiveness and increase personal effectiveness. These components include the use of instructional
delivery strategies, giving effective directions, and specific engaging techniques. Participants will discover
linguistic rules that enhance communication and spark curiosity.
